Kiddy Rides – Mixing playtime and learning time
Kiddy rides come in different attractive designs and colors. Whether it’s a scooter or car, kids immediately dash to the ride when they see one. Kiddy rides indirectly teaches kids to use their directional sense and be aware of their surroundings when they drive along corridors, obstacles indoors or outdoors. This is where the importance of play time comes into place.
They are also required to coordinate their hand and leg movements to enable their ride to move smoothly. Making the decision to brake, to increase speed, making a turn or u-turn are all part and parcel of the learning process on their kiddy rides.
We can teach our child park his car at its designated spot when the play time is over. A simple car wash to the kiddy ride can also emphasize the importance of cleanliness to our child.
